15. Miles Plumlee

There isn’t a Buck left on the roster who was healthy to participate in pre-season that played less minutes than Miles Plumlee. The 27-year-old proved his worth in the NBA as a member of the Phoenix Suns, but likely won’t be afforded similar opportunities this season in Milwaukee.

Right now, there are a couple of reasons why you’d have to guess that Plumlee’s role is set to be reduced even further than it was last year. Firstly, the signing of Greg Monroe has given Milwaukee a clear top dog in the middle, and secondly, John Henson’s extension and recent form demand that he gets his share of minutes too.

Plumlee is going to have his work cut out to get past those two, and all he can do is provide his usual effort and hustle when he does get time on the court. He showed he was game in Henson’s absence, but that probably skews what his role will look like in the larger picture based on this small sample size. First he just needs to focus on more points and less fouls…
